My son was born with Renal Tubular Acidosis and had to take the nastiest tasting medicine from 7 months of age to 5 years of age.  The only way to get him to take it was to add it to a serving of infant rice cereal, which he took 5 times per day!  Now I am terrified by these finding of high levels of arsenic in his food.  He also has a gluten sensitivity, which doubles my concern.  Is there any way to test him for arsenic?  Also, do organic brands of rice cereal have lower arsenic levels?
